The 10 page attachment in the TSB has the list of 5w40 507 oils approved by VAG. Again, I am not arguing. VW is the one that made the TSB not me.

My reason for posting the TSB was to correct the statement that "there are no 5w40 507 approved oils" by showing that, according to VAG, that is wrong.
What you are overlooking is the 'or' in the statement printed on each page of the attachment:

This attachment lists products which meet Audi Oil Quality Standard VW 502 00, VW
505 01, or VW 504 00/507 00 and are generally available worldwide at the time of
This is because not all the oils can meet both sets of specs.

The first part of the list (page 3 through the first half of pg 7) that showed the 502/505.01 oils being 0W30, 5W30 or 5W40, and the 504/507 oils all being 5W30 the second half of pg 7 and pg 8 are a clear indication that only 5W30 meet the 504/507 spec, but go ahead and look up any of the individual 5W40 oils listed in the attachment and let us know which ones claim that they meet 504/507.
